The Salvation Army says we’ve got “the worst homelessness in living memory”, but the Government is still refusing to call it a crisis.
Government ministers have long refused to use that word. Appearing on The Nation on Saturday, National social housing spokesperson Amy Adams preferred to call it housing “pressure”.
Not only was Adams still trying to blame a Labour government of 9 years ago, she was also completely hopeless – a scathing review from none other than Patrick Gower.
The incoming Labour government will have a huge job on its hands to sort out this mess.
